Nice overall features, but camera with a zeiss optics would have been better.

Tarun , 15 Feb 2016A little advice for Microsoft just close your phone business bec... moreAgreed. Microsoft should have at least used the Snapdragon 410 with 2 gbs of ram. They could have also used Intel's Z3560 w/ PowerVR G6430 graphics (or even newer solutions from Qualcomm). I don't understand why they went with such a terrible SoC.

Why you didn't comment same thing to samsung S7 teaser article as well. This is a new device in the market, so let them talking about the phone for few days, as well as samsung S7. L650 is out now, but S7 still in teaser since few last months. I can smell ur hatred toward WP. Cool brother. Do you want gsmarena talking about iphone 7 everyday? just wait before christmas. Peace (^__^)V

Now I realize why this GSMArena staff obsession with Lumia phones, especially the lowest-end ones, posting 3-4 articles daily sometimes. It's just business, these articles attract a lot of views and hate comments...110 comments on this one.

So please, readers, if you want GSMArena to ignore Lumia, as it should, do not visit these articles and do not comment on them...:)

In my opinion,the phone looks great,BUT,it drives me crazy that they gave up to the capacitive buttons!! Definitely it would have looked better with them,plus they where more practical and easy to use.

Btw even if my phone is low res that doesn't mean it can't handle high res. For example i can still watch hd videos on my phone and even 1080 x 1920 res videos, so there you have it. And when i watch videos or games in high res, pls believe me when I say i know the difference from high res to low res.
